Well, that’s promising!

I guess, perhaps, I was too harsh in my last post about iQ², because it looks like they are actually ramping up  production of both their single, and double, sided power meter pedals. Currently they are making “hundreds” with plans to hit “thousands” a week “soon after”. That’s great news. Still think it’s odd that they only supplied a single-sided sample to DCR… As you know, we’re currently scaling up production so…

As a SPD rider, yes, even on the road, this seemed the perfect place to measure power; without the drawbacks of putting the power meter in a consumable pedal. Oh, and the price was perfect. Unfortunately,…

iQsquare Pivots to Pedals

Measuring power between the pedal and the crank was a massive feature of the iQsquare power meter. Combining this with the flexibility to swap in whatever pedal you like, it offered a unique value proposition, irrespective of its incredibly low [relative] price. Unfortunately, it appears that physics has intervened, complicating things to the point where they have decided to make a pedal instead. One, Look Keo compatible, for road, and the world’s…
